On our way back from England and Wales in 2003, we spent the night at Hotel Prins Hendrik, Prins Hendrikkade 53, 1012 AC in Amsterdam. It's in that line of buildings facing the trees. Zoom out a couple of clicks and you'll see the canal and the Centraal Station. Here's their web site. Count the stars (***).
Chet Baker died there in 1988.
We took a cruise on the canals on one of these boats.
